Amazon : Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance PC up for pre-order tomorrow ($20)

some really want to see themselves quoted. everything for dat green
Well you could always self-quote but some say that's the first sign of madness.

Do I need to know much about MGS to play Revengeance or could I just step into it and not care too much about the mythology?
Freaky Post From the Future: Well to be fair the less you have invested in the MG universe the more you'd get out of Rising, I'd say. It's set 4 years after MGS4 but has very little in the way of connected narrative and outside of a few references nothing much is mentioned. Most of the characters are original to this game.

Plus the fun comes from the gameplay which considering how little dev time Platinum had it's super tight. Not their most involved or deep combat system but once you get to grips with the parrying and linking that into combos and then the Blade Mode/Zandatsu mechanic it's oddles of fun. Not to mention some of the best, if not the best boss encounters in ages.

People in the Steam thread were saying it doesn't spoil other MGS games and you don't need to have any knowledge of the series to understand what was going on.

It doesnt really matter. The game is it's own thing really, There is a shit ton of the traditional codec conversations if you want to know more about "plot".

As far as I'm concerned behind MGS3 it's the most coherent MGS game in the series.

You need to know nothing, literally nothing. Backstory comes up maybe five in a few codec calls that are optional and you will likely miss them, and every character other than Metal Gear RAY, Raiden and Sunny are all basically brand new for the game.

Come to the dark side. We welcome you!
NO I WILL NEVER FOLLOW YOU TO GAF DARK THEME LAND! I WILL REMAIN IN THE WORLD OF THE LIGHT!
 
Cats out of the bag, I guess.

That 20$ price will start tomorrow morning and run for a limited time (48h), so best get it sooner than later before it goes back up to a slightly higher price before it launches. Will be coming to Steam.

I'll try to answer any questions that I can, but most of the details are being reserved for a more official release announcement tomorrow.
Are the keys region locked? Am I safe to get one from the UK?

I guess all I want to know is, is the release date basically within the next week or so ? We're not going to have to wait until January are we ? Which is admittedly not that far off anyway.
